  1. Cheers for the advice! I do unweighted hip raises during my warm up, so maybe hip thrusts may assist, or KB swings if I can do them right!
  2. No worries, my original post wasn't the most helpful (I was on nights and getting to the end of my shift, suspect my brain was going sideways! :)) I usually do a full body workout each time I train and alternate between 2 routines: Workout A Squat 3x5 Bench Press 3x5 Pull up 3xn Hanging leg Raises 3xn Inverted bodyweight Row 3xn Workout B Deadlift 3x5 Overhead Press 3x5 Chin Up 3xn Barbell front Squat 3x5 Dips 3xn I've recently been doing a 2x per week 531 but moved on recently cos I always felt b
  3. Google let me down Been training for about 4 years but cos I've been on shifts I've been trying to maintain and make small progress. Aims are just physical fitness, some strength progression and looking half decent naked...oh yeah and moving my body effectively and being able to run 6 miles...so not too ambitious!
  4. Hola fellow nerds! I'm currently in the process of moving my programme round, and one thing I'd like to do is have an accessory exercise for my days when I do a back squat, but sort of like the equivalent of when you do a workout and dead lift, then you may do front squats as an accessory. I've had a look around the internet but my Google Fu is clearly lacking as all I can find is articles either asking about squatting and deadlifting on the same day, or comparing front squats and deadlifts...but not a lot telling me what the answer to the riddle: Back squats are t
  5. Good luck! Hope it's as pain free as possible... Sent from my Moto G (4) using Tapatalk
  6. Nothing crazy, I'd like to hit 1.5x bodyweight DL and 1 x bodyweight squat, so I'm close, I've just started 531 so hopefully that'll keep me consistent to either hit them or go above! What about you? What golas you got?
  7. I am indeed! Hope you had a good Christmas and New Year? Now I'm working on slaying the next dragon and going for sets of 10 along with getting my squat and Deadlift up over the next year!
  8. Hi there Miss! I've actually changed over from this routine to Wendlers 5/3/1 as I prefer the fact that it's a bit simpler but still has a level of periodisation and allows me the flexibility to add in different accessory work (pull ups, dip, inverted body weight rows and the like) However APRE is Auto-regulatory Progressive Resistance Exercise, and the approach is sort of as follows: 3RM Protocol 6RM Protocol 10RM Protocol 50% of 3RM – 6 reps 50% of 6RM – 10 reps 50% of 10RM – 12 reps 75% of
  9. Hi there, I've been training for about 3 years now, worked with different programs including 5x5 Stronglifts and Greyskull LP as well, so always working in the 3-5 rep level. I've recently read up on APRE and to be fair I really like the idea of it for 2 reasons, the variety of rep ranges and it's pretty flexible with regards to the exercises that you do. However, recently I've found that when working in the 10 rep range, I'm able to hit 10 or more on my first work set, but then on my second I'll hit less than 10, sometimes as low as 5. I'm putting the questio
  10. Wow! That's crazy! and really rubbish (in an injury way) but good that you're seeing the surgeon soon! I really hope it all goes ok for you!
  11. I'm not too bad cheers! Keeping busy, still on the crazy shifts but managing! How are you going now?
  12. I know that I've not been on here for a long time, however, my training hasn't wavered and I've still kept fighting the good fight... My story starts 3 years ago, I began strength training at the gym, I was unable to perform a single pull up or chin up, I then put in the time every. single. session. to improve that. I did inverted body-weight rows I did band assisted pull ups and chin ups I did single chin ups I never thought I'd progress beyond that, I'd never hit that magic 10. Yesterday when I trained I decided to see how far I'd co
  13. Obligatory fnar fnar - erectors - also is it feasible to use foam rolled my erectors as a euphemism? Sorry Gainsdalf, I bet it must have been painful
  14. OUCH! Well, thankfully it appears it have cleared up of it's own accord from last night (after watching Civil War! It was awesome!) So back on it tomorrow and I'll see how I get on (still gonna go light though!)
